FRMS Chess Team


General Information

Who:  Everyone is welcome - whether you have played for years or are simply interested in learning how to play.  The Chess team is open to any 6th, 7th, or 8th grader interested in playing chess.  


What:  Chess Team players play chess!  Players should be ready and willing to accept a challenge from any player.  Players are expected to demonstrate good sportsmanship and a willingness to help others become better players.  Unless other arrangements are made with the chess team coach, players should stay for the entire practice.
